I had a similar problem with Chrome.  In Gnome, when you choose to make
Chrome your default browser using the pop-up dialogue, it will create a
"custom" entry in your preferred applications.  This custom entry isn't set
up correctly and ignores any URLs passed from other applications.  If you go
into preferred applications and change the drop-down to "Chrome", it should
hopefully start working (assuming you're using Gnome).

I used Chrome most of the day yesterday and set it up as my default

browser, but when clicking a link in Thunderbird, Chrome would load only

on the home page.
